Don’t you like Visa free travel? I sure love that. Visa free is hassle free; plus money and time saving. Citizens of the United States of America can visit almost 160 countries and territories with just a valid US passport.

Note: Some of these countries listed below do require a visa, but it can be issued upon arrival. If you have a US Green Card (Permanent Residency card), please check this Visa free travel list for US Green Card holders.
